The motor was recently serviced and comes will full performance report including the hours logged on the motor. The layout is side console with two cushioned seats including a seat mount on the front casting deck, rod locker, front and rear casting deck including storage hatches, 90 litre live well and 60 litre under floor fuel tank).

The hull is in excellent condition with no cracks and no welds/patch jobs. Some superficial scratches on the side of the hull mainly caused by rubbing against pontoons. Boat sits on a Dunbier trailer which is in good condition. Rego for both the trailer and boat expires September 2015 Boat is registered with QLD plates however the boat is located in Sydney NSW.

  5. Hi Guys I have 3 x 150 metre spools of Frog PE Braid for sale in 4lb, 8lb & 12lb (Orange) $70 each plus $5 postage anywhere in Australia, you can pick up if you like in the Sydney area Thanks Manny
  6. Cheers guys - yeah a few more reports will come Binder the harbour is a hell of a lot healthier than it used to be, most people that had issues with eating fish in the harbour were eating a tonne of fish. I won't be worried about having one here and there
  7. Hey Brian, yeah there would be plenty to fill a bloopers clip with my casting abilities
  8. Well it's been a long time since I posted a report and that's mainly because I haven't fished for many, many months however that's all about to change as I get settled in to Sydney life and now living very close to the water As most of you know I’ve recently moved back to Sydney and I finally got my little tub out for a spin on the Harbour in search of some kingies & Salmon. Fortunately the harbour is plagued by schools of kingies and it didn’t take long to find them feeding in one of the bays. The schools were very thick and large with Salmon & Kingies terrorising the bait school moving up and down the bay hardly stopping for any breathers!!! I spent a lot of time on the fly rod which I’m still learning to use and was getting some great follows however I couldn't entice them to strike and given the 1 in 10 casts that was good I was also wasting a lot of time trying to hook one up, in the end it was good practice using the fly rod in the boat and learning how not to catch every part of the boat but it was time to go to the old faithful spin gear. A couple casts in and straight away a solid hook up and shortly after I landed my first Sydney Harbour king, albeit a little fella but good to tick one off the list in my maiden voyage after 4/5 years being away from Sydney. Token photo with the Harbour bridge in the background I chased them around for a little while longer but had no luck, as the school nearly all but disappeared I pulled up the boat near a small beach, had a feed and a swim and called it a day. Not a bad way to spend the day whilst others were at work, thanks for reading Manni

    sold Free PFD's

    Hey Guys Was cleaning up the garage and found 4 PFD's which I don't need/use - brand new never used, so if someone would like them they're all yours. Pick up only and must be able to pick them up tomorrow in Enoggera Cheers Manni
  13. Some awesome fish caught mate. Those ocean potion stick baits are good, I had one until I cast it at some dollies and broke off mid flight, a fish had taken the lure before we could recover it.....
  14. Good stuff Carter, the brand seems to have taken off quite well in its infancy. I would suggest a prettier model other than myself, that will be a sure way to boost sales lol
  15. Size / weight of trebles can affect a lures action and even the floating/suspending/sink rate. not sure about colour though, will e interesting to see what people think
